of chicago professor praised hagel for not being pro-israel. he said potential candidates like hillary clinton, john mccain, joe biden were falling all over themselves to express their support for israel. the only exception to that rule was senator chuck hagel. i don't have anything to go with that with what you might have said but -- some of the concerns -- i used to say when i was the whip in the house you can count on the house and the senate to be among other thing, always pro-israel. i think that is the main stream of our views. i've seen a number of times that you've said you can be pro-israel but that does not mean you have to be for everything that israel is for. they are what they are. they are reported from comments that you made that are out of the context of the other comments. also, earlier today, i asked you about the bloated pentagon. you said that -- those comments were before the sequestration bill passed. they were after the bill passed. sequestration passed on august 2 and the interview was on august 29. what you said on august 29 of -- in that "financial times" inte

, but the proxy americans look at when it comes to the middle east is israel, when it comes the dealing with iran, with israel, with the broader region. hillary clinton holds the record for the most countries visited at 112. israel, the least visits from any secretary of state since rogers. henry kissinger, 36 times for israel. is this significant? >> well, i mean, she was very energetic. i don't know if she gets frequent flyer miles for all of the miles she logged. that is her job as chief diplomat. >> sadly probably the one perk she does not get. >> right, but the fact is our relationship with israel hasn't been the best. so i don't know if you can directly equate that. anne marie served in the administration. but under the obama administration, relations with israel have been very tough. they may have reached a bottom and mare they're on an uprise, but once again, i think this comes down to president obama's policy. remember, she's the secretary of state. she implements the president's agenda, and i think a lot of the problems out there, i think, were president obama's vision. i think i may be

his hometown paper "the lincoln journal star" there is not one shred of evidence that i'm anti-israel, not one vote against israel. hagel voted for close to $ho 40 billion in military aid to israel. further, as richard cohen notes in "the washington post" nothing hagel has said about israel is not said in the israeli press on a daily basis. trust me, by the "wall street journal" standards israeli media would be deeply anti-semitic. lost perhaps in the discussion over hagel's position on israel is one of the main reasons he was nominated in the first place. >> most importantly, chuck knows that war is not an abstraction. he knows that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> a decorated war veteran reportedly requested to be sent to vietnam. hagel spoke to the library of congress in 2002 about how his military service had informed his world view. >> someone needs to represent that perspective in our government as well. the people in washington make the policy, but it's the little guys who come back in
